Team Losi Racing 1/8 8IGHT-XT/XTE 1/8 Nitro/Electric 4WD Off-Road Truggy Kit
I’ve had this truck for six months and have driven it probably 30 times. It’s so much fun to drive that I could not resist bashing it, and now I really am paying the price, both literally and figuratively. I’ve spent probably $500 on replacement parts, including two chassis. The second chassis did not last more than one session as I lost power midflight and landed upside down. This was not huge air like you see on YouTube. Shame on me for bashing it since it’s not designed for that, but nonetheless it gets four stars due to fragility. You could land upside down one time and break the chassis even if you’re not bashing. If you want to bash, don’t get this truggy, get the Talion ESB instead. That’s going to be my next car. The Losi is going to be relegated to the track.
